The Pittsburgh Steelers are listening to trade offers for star wide out Antonio Brown. One reporter says to keep an eye on the Denver Broncos.
Antonio Brown has been one of the NFL’s most electric wide outs in the league. Entering along with current Broncos wide out Emmanuel Sanders in 2010, he has come along as of lately. Broncos fans saw for themselves what he can do for a team when they saw him in 2015.
He did not have a huge impact in this season’s matchup, but he is still one of the best wide outs today. Which is why the NFL world was a bit shocked when it was said that Brown was looking to be traded as the season came to an end.
Now the Pittsburgh Steelers are willing to listen to trade offers regarding Antonio Brown. And one team that could make a run is our Denver Broncos. Ian Rapoport tells us more about it.
Rapoport says the Steelers would potentially receiver at least a second round pick. I believe that could be a solid asking price for the talented wide out. Denver fans saw how much of an impact a big time wide out can bring. When the Broncos lost Emmanuel Sanders for the year and Demaryius Thomas was traded, that was a huge part of the offense that left with them.
I don’t think a second round pick would be asking for much. If Denver was interested, a second and third would be solid. Which would sweeten the deal for the Steelers since Denver picks in the top ten in every round.
But some fans could be turned off by Brown’s “diva attitude.” The bickering in the Pittsburgh locker room can tell a lot about a player. We know VIc Fangio is a no nonsense coach, so the attitude of Brown would not fly with him.
I believe it would not hurt to explore the possibilities. While Denver does have Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton in the wings, having a player like Antonio Brown that can make some plays would elevate the Broncos to a whole new level. Let us see what John Elway decides to do.
